All three are made from twisty wood, or a tree branch that has grown entwined with Honeysuckle creating this lovely twisty finish.
One of the hiking sticks looks exactly like the Stick Man from the Julia Donaldson rhyming verse story entitled “The Stick Man”, with eyes, a nose and mouth. I am tempted to keep this one for the boys bedroom!
The other sticks have a Shamrock badge made from pewter on the handle tops.
Sticks are made with all sorts of handle toppers, pins and badges to make a stick a little bit special, personalised or just interesting.
You can buy English county badges, National Service badges, old English Pennies that have been bent around to fit the shaft of your stick and collectible European badges.
Toppers can be made from Silver, Pewter, Copper or resin. Some people like to have their favorite fly fishing flies set in resin and glued on to the handle of their wading stick or hiking stick.

We now stock a really strong rubber ferrule to fit any shooting stick.
Our shooting sticks all have a metal spike at the tip for pushing into soft ground (such as in a field) but if you require the stick to be used on a hard surface such as a pavement, then one of these ferrules is what you need.

They are reinforced with steel washers and are designed to withstand the weight of the shooting stick (about 1.5 kg) and the weight of the person using it.
